Guild A-20 Bob Marley Acoustic Guitar + Bag – Natural

The Bob Marley Guild A-20 Acoustic Guitar + Bag – Natural

A Guitar that Captures the Free Spirit of Bob Marley

As the most important reggae songwriter of all time, Bob Marley penned songs of freedom, redemption, and celebration. In the process, he became a cultural touchstone, uniting millions across borders, race, and ideology. The Guild A-20 Marley acoustic guitar is based on the icon’s at-home Guild Madeira that he turned to again and again to pen some of his most heartfelt, classic songs. The A-20 has been designed stem to stern for playability, response, and stellar sound. It features a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides for full, rich tone and robust projection — ideal for songwriters who like to explore melody and meaningful message. The smooth C-shaped mahogany neck with pau ferro fingerboard and the friendly 25.5-inch scale offer wonderful playability and response as well. Finally, a genuine bone nut and saddle enhance the resonance and sustain on this gorgeous instrument.

 

Description

Celebrate Bob Marley and his music

The A-20 Marley features many appointments that commemorate the legendary songwriter’s original Madeira. To begin, the vintage-correct, flat, and round-cornered headstock with the original Guild script logo casts a stripped-down, humble presentation. There’s a custom pickguard with Marley’s signature, plus a “Marley” inlay on the 12th fret. Guild has also included a booklet on the history of Marley’s original Madeira, with details on how the A-20 Marley was made as well as touching stories from his family. You also get three custom guitar picks featuring a lion and the classic Guild G-shield in gold ink and a poster featuring Marley relaxing at home with his original Madeira. Finally, in keeping with Marley’s championing of responsible stewardship of the planet, Guild has partnered with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every Marley guitar made!

Based on Bob Marley’s at-home, songwriting guitar, the Guild A-20 Marley is a worthy tribute to the reggae legend. Many of Marley’s hits through the seventies were written on his Guild Madeira acoustic guitar. The A-20 Marley reintroduces Marley’s beloved dreadnought to the world along with a few modern appointments. Built with a solid spruce top and mahogany back and sides, the full-bodied and powerful tone of this dreadnought provides Marley fans and songwriters alike with an easy-to-play, well-balanced acoustic guitar. The C-shaped neck with 25 ½” scale length allows for a relaxed and comfortable feel. Unique features include a vintage-correct, flat, round-cornered headstock with vintage Guild script logo, custom pickguard with Bob Marley signature, and a MARLEY script inlay on the 12th fret. Additional features include a pau ferro fingerboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle, and a matte polyurethane finish. Available in Natural. As a continuation of Bob Marley’s love for music and planet, the guitar includes a premium Marley X Guild gig bag made from recycled nylon. Additionally, Guild has partnered with One Tree Planted to plant a tree for every Marley guitar made. The included booklet contains the history of Marley’s Guild Madeira, first-hand stories from his family, details on how the A-20 Marley was made, and official chords for one of Bob Marley’s biggest hits. Three custom guitar picks display a lion and Guild G-Shield in gold ink. Finally, an exclusive poster featuring Bob Marley and his original Guild is included to commemorate the legacy of one of the world’s greatest songwriters.
